I find myself at a bit of a crossroads; faced with a decision that feels monumental but which is, in the grand scheme of things, just a choice between a good option and another good option. (Given what some people are facing in their lives suggesting that this is a difficult place to be is preposterous. And selfish.)
But I am the kind of person who likes to have all the information before I make a decision, and in moments like this – for decisions like this – you can’t (have all the information, I mean). Because much of it is unknowable, for the time being anyway. So I find myself continuing to collect information and yet am still unsatisfied. Not uncertain, because when I’m being honest with myself, I made the decision a long time ago, but unsatisfied that I’m making a decision without all the pertinent information.
So, I’d like to know: when you’re faced with a decision between two good options, how do you decided? Do you make lists? Charts? Have long conversations or long meditations? Or do you just throw a dart or flip a coin and let destiny decide for you?
